Jimmy Kimmel Comes Clean To Hillary Clinton Pickle Jar Truthers

Jimmy Kimmel has come clean about Monday’s appearance of Hillary Clinton on his ABC late-night show, confessing that Guillermo Rodriguez did in fact loosen the top of the pickle jar before the Democratic nominee opened it. The bit was intended to debunk Team Trump talk about Clinton being too frail to serve as commander-in-chief.  Kimmel credited Alex Jones, America’s Busiest Conspiracy Theorist, with blowing the lid off the story.
“You just had to keep digging, didn’t…

Constance Zimmer On Her ‘UnREAL’ Beginnings: “I Never Watched Reality Shows”

UnREAL–Lifetime’s take on the inner workings of a dating reality show called Everlasting–could so easily have been a piece of lightweight fluff. Instead, its lead, Constance Zimmer, has helped to bring power and depth to the show’s highly-skilled writing, earning herself an Emmy nom in the role of cutthroat TV producer Quinn.
From the start, Zimmer was reluctant to take on the job. “I didn’t even read the script,” she says. “I was like, nothing about this is interesting…

Capone’s Art-House Round-Up with SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU, MORRIS FROM AMERICA and Herzog’s LO & BEHOLD

Capone’s Art-House Round-Up with SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU, MORRIS FROM AMERICA and Herzog’s LO & BEHOLD

Read the full article on AICN

Hey, folks. Capone in Chicago here, with a few films that are making their way into art houses or coming out in limited release around America this week (maybe even taking up one whole screen at a multiplex near you). Do your part to support these films, or at least the good ones… SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU The most romantic film you will see all year just happens to be a barely fictionalized account of the first date of the couple who just happen to occupy the White House for a few more months. Writer-director Richard Tanne’s debut feature, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU, is a simple yet wildly ambitious and slightly audacious look at two smart, thoughtful problem solvers who both happened to live on the South side of Chicago in the summer of 1989. Michelle Robinson (played by Tika Sumpter, of the RIDE ALONG films) was all about her career at the law firm (where she was the only black woman employed). She was also the supervisor of one Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers), a Harvard-educated summer associate, who somehow became the star of the office almost immediately. One of Obama’s gifts was reading other people and knowing how far he can push them, so rather than simply ask Robinson on a date, he invited her to a community meeting he was attending. But what she didn’t know was that the meeting was only a small part of the day he had planned for them. What you must realize
